New Retro News: Shadow Complex Remastered and Free

Shadow Complex was an xbox arcade exclusive that took the traditional metroidvania format to ‘next generation gaming’. It’s wasn’t groundbreaking, but it was a decent romp with plenty of blasting action and grunting all-american protagonists for all. Now, it’s remastered for the PC. Also, free.


The news has been floating around for a while, so most people probably are already playing it right now rather than reading this, but we thought we should post for posterity’s sake nonetheless. It’s apparently free “for the holidays” – so it’s not clear how long exactly but presumably over the rest of Christmas.

Note: you need to download the Epic Games client thingy first then download Shadow Complex and run it through that. 





About J.C

I grew up in the dark dingy arcades of the 1980s, blasting heads with Robocop 2, but grew up in an era that spanned the introduction of the x86 home computer, through to the 16-bit revolution, into the polygon age and beyond. I write about food, travel and of course, New Retro Games. I started and contribute to I am also a freelance business researcher, writer, and editor having published academic and corporate articles on innovation and intellectual property.
